• First instalment to the Android Series:






:bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite:

Broken melodies
No more singing
No more laughing in the sun

...

Only time will go on
River has its end
Our light was blown by the wind



River of Crystals
Music by Kenji Kawai


:bulletwhite::bulletwhite::bulletwhite:




It seems that without even conscious intention, I made this for the song, tying in with the theme I love so well, yet have tried time and again to portray with less than favourable outcomes:



We weep for a bird's cry,
but not for a fish's blood.
Blessed are those with a voice.




Also interesting is that self portraiture was not envisaged for this either, however the reference photo that my husband took of me had a certain look that I couldn't ignore, and ultimately, and I say this with deep humility... it just felt right.


I hope you will enjoy this as much as I did during its creation. This is the first of what I hope to be a very expansive android series, some of which will be revisiting earlier pieces.


Thank you so much for looking :heart: and thank you again Sam ^sphilr and my husband `zerocomplex for your patient guidance.

This is very beautiful. I love the choice of colors, they just fit in very well with each other.

The fish is so cute looking too, I love the detail on it. Lovely work~ :meow:
